    OK, I guess we all get to brag a little on our purchases. Attended a stamp show in Salt Lake City, UT today and probably spent too much money, but I sure filled in a lot of gaps in my collection(s) and can now start pushing the 'envelope' of my collection in another direction. Now that my US airmails are complete (and mint) for all practical purposes, I can start focusing on obtaining the $1 thru $5 'Columbians" and US scott catalog #1 & #2.
